The Hydrology Laboratory, situated within the Bari section of the CNR-IRPI, conducts analyses on the waters sampled during the research projects performed by the institute or for external collaborations, becoming so an important support for all the routine activities.
The laboratory has conventional as well as modern equipments for analytical determinations of the main physico-chemical parameters of surface waters and groundwater resources as well as specific equipments for field hydrogeological surveys.
The specific activities of the Laboratory concern both the chemical analyses of natural waters and the study of the salient features of groundwater (chemical facies).
All the laboratory and field investigations and analyses are performed by a qualified personnel of the Laboratory and according to standard procedures.
The technical staff of the Laboratory works both within the UOS Bari and if necessary also in the field for the sampling and/or the measurement activities.
